Info

(syn: Ligularia tussilaginea 'Aureomaculata') I grew up knowing leopard plant as a houseplant before finally discovering its amazing winter hardiness. The round, bold, shiny green, 8-10" wide leaves are spotted with yellow dots, as though it were a leopard skin; hence, the name. This consummate conversation piece grows well in sites that can be kept slightly moist, but well-drained...poor drainage kills. That being said, it wilts when dry but is amazingly drought-tolerant. The 24" wide clumps are topped with numerous 30" stalks of spectacular yellow daisies in October and November.
